About The Awesome 80s Prom:

The Awesome 80s Prom is "the interactive experience in the style of Tony n' Tina's Wedding and The Donkey Show set at the Wanaget High's Senior Prom. in 1989! All your favorite characters from your favorite '80s movies are at The Prom from the Captain of the Football Team to the Asian Exchange Student, from the Geek to the hottie Head Cheerleader, and they're all competing for Prom King and Queen. And just like on 'American Idol,' the audience decides who wins, all while moonwalkin' to great retro hits."

The show was conceived and directed by Ken Davenport and written by Davenport and "The Class of 1989", a group of performers including Sheila Berezan, Alex Back, Adam Bloom, Anne Bobby, Courtney Balan, Nicole Cicchella, Mary Faber, Stephen Guarino, Jeff Hiller, Emily McNamara, Troy Metcalf, Jenna Pace, Amanda Ryan Paige, Brian Peterson, Jessica West Regan, Kathy Searle, Mark Shunock, Josh Walden, Noah Weisberg, Brandon Williams, Simon Wong and Fletcher Young. In addition to The Awesome 80s Prom, Davenport is currently presenting Altar Boyz (2005 Outer Critics Award winner, now on National Tour as well) with Robyn Goodman (Avenue Q), at New World Stages.
